Looking back over a release from ENS sent earlier in the year, I was reading about the exhibit featuring the life of John Maury allin, TEC’s 23rd Presiding Bishop. An online exhibit and archive are being provided via the Episcopal Archives.
In reading about the history of the Episcopal Church and the larger Church in general, there have been some interesting historical periods and events that have been experienced. Some of the things I’ve found the most interesting include:
- The development of the Book of Common Prayer liturgy from 1549 through the present BCP
- The Oxford Movement, including the changes it brought to how we “do church”
- The American Revolution and Civil War, and how they both affected the life of the church
